I am a certified inspector. I'm too smart to be a "certified state inspector" though. That's not the point. I wouldn't go somewhere that wants to ride my . It's not a shock to me either that some require it.

Semantics, and not the point. but I'll clarify: "Certified Vehicle Inspector by The Texas Department of Public Safety"

well, with the recent changes in the law, little infractions like mine are no longer just tickets, they are now coupled with at minimum 6-12 month suspensions, and the felonies are alot easier to come by.

With those changes came more and more DPS crackdowns. its only a matter of time before you'll be stuck handing your keys over, or riding dirty.

Most of those idiots are barely qualified to place the sticker. I would be forced to find a spot where I know someone.

with that i will agree with you. but trust me, the class filters out 75% of the idiots that try. each class starts with about 60 people. only a handful, like 10 make it through. and even then they barely pass.
